We are more than excited to tell you about our newest Guest Designer Corrie Jones. We have noticed that this Georgia Peach is not only a talented scrapbooker, but a perfect match for our Saturdays Collection. Remember how I told you yesterday that this is a wonderful "adult" collection... well we can't wait to share Corrie's talent with you and especially her take on the collection....so let's get started! Below are a few questions and answers to get to know Corrie a little bit better.
LYB: What is your ‘go to’ embellishment?
CJ: Buttons, brads, rub ons. I like small embellishments. The more I can layer on, the better!
LYB: What are your favorite types of projects—pages, mini albums, cards, altered projects, etc?
CJ: My favorite type of projects are pages. I will occasionally do a mini album.
LYB: Describe your biggest scrapbooking ‘mishap’?
CJ: My biggest mishap always seems to be with mist. I always end up getting it everywhere! One time I had a mist bottle with a clog. Trying to clean it out, I took the top off and forced the clog out. I was not watching where the tube was pointed however, and ended up shooting mist all over my pants and shoes.
This was a simple page I wanted to make of my husband in a local coffee shop. It was just a regular moment, nothing really special. Our girls were with us. It was freezing outside and we stopped here for a quick pick-me-up before heading back to the car. This coffee shop is a small independently owned place that is usually filled with "alternative" college kids and ballerinas from the local dance studio. It reminds me of college more than the normal Starbucks I tend to frequent now. Anyway, these pictures just made me dream of my hubby and what it would have been like had we known each other back in the early 90's when I was the grungy, coffee house girl that I was.
Needing to tell my story though about why I was scrapbooking these photos from a pretty insignificant moment, I decided some hidden journaling would really work well. I typed up the story of my "dream" and it is hiding under the middle picture.
The rest of the page is my tribute to paper stacking. Layering papers, chipboard shapes, stickers, tags and clear cut shapes, is just my way to love all the supplies. The different pieces add the texture and dimension I love so much.
